Aquinas Academy Parents’ Association (AAPA)

The AAPA is the primary means by which parents are involved with the Academy, providing many committee opportunities for parent participation as well as coordinating large fundraising efforts to support major projects on campus. By supporting the school through volunteering time and talent, parents also get to know other parents. All parents/guardians of Aquinas Academy students are automatically a member of the association.

AAPA Events 2018-19

Aquinas Academy Gala – March 2, 2019

Aquinas Academy…the Key to Success

Through the collective generosity of our sponsors and parents, the Keys to Success Gala was a fabulous evening and successful fundraiser!

Aquinas Academy is thankful to Cindy Cresta, Vanessa Harrison, and Jennifer Hite, who headed up a committee of parents who managed everything from class baskets to the program to the invitations, and to all of those who contributed either time or auction/special-event items. We are also grateful to our major sponsors who guaranteed our financial success even before the evening began.

May Crowning – May 21, 2019

Second grade First Communicants and their families participate in this traditional May Crowning Ceremony at Mass. Following the Mass, there is a luncheon in the cafeteria for the First Communicants and their families, provided by the 3rd grade class parents.
